Have you ever been ignored? What about talked about, lied on, treated unfairly? You name it, you probably dealt with it personally or known of other incidents close to home. Listen family, I have some news...ready...okay... YOU ARE ENOUGH! No matter what they said to you, what they did to you, and how their words and actions affected you. You are enough, You are loved, You are amazing, You are beautiful! Ephesians 2:10 says you are God's masterpiece! The point is no matter what was said, who said it, and the actions taken against you; You are SEEN! Oh, what a joy to know I am seen. What an incredible feeling to know I am truly seen. Now that I know I am seen. I also know, that I am enough. I am more than enough. I finally understand the pain, and the breaking was to build my character. I am seen! Jesus sees me, just like he saw the woman bent over for eighteen years.
Read, Luke 13:10-13 NIV
10. On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11. and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity. ”13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
He saw her, He saw her pain, He saw her anguish, He saw her tears, He saw the way other "Christians" treated her and "prayed" for her. He saw her! Jesus, do you see me? All the pain? All my tears? My broken heart? The emotional pitfalls? You see me, right? YES! My faith has shown me You do. Oh God, thank you for seeing me. God reminds us in his word that we are loved, adored, treasured, and above all SEEN!
The next time you feel broken, defeated, heartbroken, depressed, or stressed, do not give up, do not lose hope, and please remember fam, YOU ARE SEEN!
Living in, on, and for purpose, are you?
